Al­ways at the fore­front of trends, tak­ing over the op­er­a­tions of his in­vest­ment in EDO was Barry Chaim’s third ca­reer. Strat­egy, brand­ing and ex­e­cu­tion were al­ways his strengths. Af­ter hav­ing won awards for de­sign and in­no­va­tion, he took his ex­pe­ri­ence, drive, vi­sion and pas­sion to EDO where the in­no­va­tive menu, ap­proach to ex­cel­lence in cus­tomer ser­vice, and care for his guests and staff were re­warded by recog­ni­tion by the me­dia and the line-ups at the door. In 1999, he brought the idea of sushi to a sports arena, and was the first in the world when EDO proudly opened at the Air Canada Cen­tre. To­day he has four lo­ca­tions, and while EDO on Eglin­ton has suf­fered through the tur­moil of LRT con­struc­tion and a dev­as­tat­ing fire, he is not de­terred. In­stead he looks ahead to the next trend. De­vel­oped by his son Josh, EDO was the first in Toronto to in­tro­duce the Sushi Bur­rito at the ACC in 2015 and Hawai­ian-in­spired Poke. A new di­rec­tion for the restau­rants is be­ing planned and the op­por­tu­ni­ties his ex­pe­ri­ences al­low him to en­ter­tain will con­tinue to bring won­der­ful foods and ex­pe­ri­ences to Toronto and wher­ever EDO will open in the fu­ture.
